It will come as no surprise that Patch has a Christmas collar, lead, bandana and bow tie.
In fact he has them for pretty much every occassion, including birthdays, going to the pub, being superdog, being a star (this was from when he was the only dog in a superheroes fun run)

If you’re looking to treat your dog this Christmas, and want to shop small, then look no further.
Here are our favourite collar, lead, and bandana sets for Christmas 2020
Christmas collar, lead and bandana set
Last year, Dilyn the Downing Street dog, wore the Christmas pudding set the day after the election hitting the headlines all over the world.
Never one to be left out, Patch has the same one which marvelous maker Kim O’Donnell gifted us as a thank you.
